Kinetic and Semi-Slick Fun
20 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A crackling good try at a new Ninja Movie release, this one has all the expected fights and flaws that Fans have come to expect. It is a non-stop Action Movie and the Ninja handle is there for a background Story and is included in parts of the fighting but not all.

It is a hybrid of sorts and not pure in in its Title's intent. There are a lot of Guns to go with the Bows and Swords and of course there is a lot of Hand-to-Hand. The Star's athletic charisma and Skill is Awesome and his petite companion is quite feisty, but she takes a lot of punishment and the Macho Man is there a bit too often to order her to "hit the deck" or in true Chivalrous fashion, rescue her from bludgeoning or Death.

All of the B Movie clichés are here to make fun but the Movie is so neat looking and hyper-kinetic that the Viewer hardly has time to be annoyed. The most glaring is the obligatory fight that is the showcase for the Hero to fight 10-1 to show off his chops (a Jason Statham trademark).

Of course in this Scene all the Bad Guys are mysteriously without Guns that were there just a minute before. But that would put an end to the ever present elongated choreographed Kung-Fu Dance that could be called the "Hero vs Everybody at Once" part.

Overall worth a view for Action Fans and B-Movie Lovers.
